Yippee I managed to get a background on my blog - actually was really easy when I just applied by frazzled mind to it...what do you think?
Had the luxury of a whole day off to spend with Hols and girlfriends. We started the day with a long walk stopping (of course) half way for coffee and cake!
Whenever I meet up with friends I love to find the time to make a little gift to take....especially when they are scrapbook nuts like me! Here is what I made my Havant pals today...tiny treasure boxes, perfect for keeping little things in. I made them from two large match-boxes stuck together and then covered in a new High Tea paper. I then fished in my box of pre-made paper and button flowers (definately make up embellishments like this in advance as its so cool to have them at the ready for moments like this!), and choose favourite ones to put on the top.
I then wrapped them in cellophane and put curling ribbon on....they didn't open them there and then, so I hope they love them.
Hope this inspires you to make tiny treasures for friends
